"Tzipi Livni murdered... an Iraqi nuclear scientist... with poison"

"She is a criminal... she is a murderer"

"[Her] threats [against Mahmoud Abbas]
 must be taken seriously"
PA Chairman Abbas' spokesperson:
"Statements made by Tzipi Livni, should be considered official threats... [and] make her a party that cannot be negotiated with"
By Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik
Palestinian spokespeople have been presenting Israeli Minister of Justice and chief negotiator Tzipi Livni's statements that Mahmoud Abbas will have to "pay the price" for the peace talks' failure if he doesn't moderate his positions, as personal threats to Abbas:

"Spokesman for PA President Abbas, Nabil Abu Rudeina said that statements made by Minister of Justice and head of the Israeli negotiating team Tzipi Livni should be considered official threats and are unacceptable... He added that Livni's statements make her a party that cannot be negotiated with... It should be noted that Livni warned President Abbas that, 'He will pay the price for adhering to his positions.'" [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 27, 2014]
Muhammad Abu Saada, a lecturer in International Law at the University of Palestine in Gaza was interviewed by PA TV. He asserted that Livni's threats should be seen as personal threats and taken seriously since she murdered "an Iraqi nuclear scientist and killed him with poison," "She is a criminal... She is a murderer" and therefore, may commit murder again.

The following is a transcript of the interview given by Muhammad Abu Saada, a lecturer in International Law at the University of Palestine in Gaza, to PA TV:

PA TV host: "[Tzipi] Livni, the Israeli Minister of Justice, the head of the Israeli negotiating team, threatened President Abbas and said that if he continues to refuse to recognize the Jewish state and adheres to his positions, which are unacceptable to Israel and the world, he will pay the price. What price is Livni talking about?"
Muhammad Abu Saada, lecturer in International  Law, University of Palestine, Gaza: "Livni is a Mossad officer... These threats must be taken seriously... Based on Livni's mentality and on an analysis of Livni's personality, could she do something stupid? And could her threat be carried out? The answer is yes. Why? First of all, Livni comes from a family that is extremely far-right... I want to remind so-called Minister Livni: Livni, the French government issued a warrant for your arrest in 1983. Why? Because at the time, Livni was a Mossad officer working as a maid in the home of an Iraqi nuclear scientist and she killed him with poison... Livni, in legal terminology, is a criminal. She has a criminal record. She is a murderer. She committed murder in 1983 and Britain issued a warrant for her arrest in 2009. Livni's personality has a criminal mentality, of direct murder. Therefore, we must understand this [threat] on the personal level. Regarding the price, we're talking about two things. Either the price is President Mahmoud Abbas' life - this is one price."
PA TV host: "Like what happened to the late Yasser Arafat."
Muhammad Abu Saada: "Of course. The second price is the possibility of destroying the foundations and rule of Palestine headed by the President, in the political sense."

Comment:  PIP with this kind of pervasive culture-when our enemy decides to put into place social and political structures designed for peace, Israel will be ready to talk-not now.
